Now, Christopher Wylie names JD(U), says Cambridge Analytica did caste surveys

Chief Executive Cambridge Analytica Alexander Nix

It has also sought details on whether it the data has been used to manipulate the Indian electoral process.

The government release said the ministry sent a letter to the company asking what "proactive measures are being taken to ensure the safety, security and privacy of such large user data and to prevent its misuse by any third party?" and whether the personal data of Indian voters was "compromised by Cambridge Analytica" or any other entity. Hindustan Times has previously reported, referencing the website of CA's Indian partner that has since been taken down, that the company claims to have worked for both the Congress and the BJP in India. "This is what modern colonialism looks like", he wrote. Trump's campaign hired Cambridge Analytica in June 2016 and paid it more than US$6.2 million.

What's also been made simpler, Facebook claims, is how users decide what data can and can't be shared with applications.

"They (Cambridge Analytica) worked extensively in India".

Being an "unacceptable violation of trust and the commitments they made", Facebook chose to suspend SCL/Cambridge Analytica, Wylie and Kogan from Facebook, "pending further information".

Rewriting its terms of service to better explain how it holds and uses data. "We enjoy the benefits of electricity, despite the fact that it can literally kill you".

During a lengthy session in which MPs from across the political spectrum on the culture, media and sport (DCMS) committee quizzed Wylie, he provided a snapshot of the work carried out by the firms, now in the spotlight, highlighting how data captured enabled them to build up psychological profiles of individuals who would be particularly susceptible to forms of certain tactics.

Additionally, 20 percent users expect to upgrade to an iPhone 8 or iPhone X by 2019, bringing the total share up to 42 percent. Apple recently sent out invites to an event, where the company is expected to announce new products and services.

Wylie also disclosed a location of the firm's office and regional centres, owned and operated by SCL in India.

At the beginning of Wylie's testimony to the House of Commons Digital, Culture and Sport Committee, chairman Damian Collins said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had not accepted an invitation to give evidence, suggesting that the company's chief product officer, Chris Cox, speak in his stead.

During the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign, Cambridge Analytica used the data to target undecided voters in swing states such as Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, all of which were won by Trump.

In the broad context of public concern over data mining, there's one recurring problem that's causing a lot of confusion: most people don't have the technical knowledge to understand what's happening. The same whistleblower said that he "believes" CA was retained by the Indian National Congress, a charge the Congress has denied. Nix will now appear before a United Kingdom parliamentary committee, which is likely to take place on 17 April. They included particularly concerning instances of the role AIQ had played in disseminating violent video content by social media in Nigeria, as part of work there.

Wylie personally supported the "Leave" campaign, as he told the committee, but was troubled by what he viewed as threats to the democratic process.

The data was harvested in 2014 via a questionnaire app on Facebook called "thisisyourdigitallife", which attracted 270,000 subscribers - a relatively small amount. "But what's done is done".
